I believe that as a fellow world tenant I have a right to speak on any issue in the building, but even more so when one of the other tenants forgets his/her place and assumes the role of landlord. I see the US's position at present is on of self-appointed landlord and it’s scary.
Further to that, your assertion that one only has the right to speak when one is wealthy enough to afford a voice I find abhorrent, although it dovetails well with current US policy. When I see an injustice and bullying I’m afraid I was raised to speak up about it. You seem to suggest that when one land is invaded by another, only the invaders have the right to speak about it. What a concerning attitude to have.
